Anyone applied Human Development and Family Studies?

Hi!

I wonder if this is the spot to post what I want to ask and talk about. If not, please direct me where I should post this! (I kind of think my interests fit into sociology as well)

I applied the program called Human Development and Family Studies (PhD) for fall 2011. Each school has a slightly different name of the program, but my focuses are parenting, relationship, and regulation of emotion. I applied 10 schools and two of them are Developmental Psychology under the Department of Psychology.

Some of the schools probably have already begun reviewing the application materials because the deadlines were Dec 1st and Jan 1st. Some schools are probably still waiting and accepting application materials because the deadline is 15th of Jan.

I would like to hear from those of you who applied the program for fall 2011 if you have heard from them for an interview or decision.

I wonder if there is any place for those who applied such program and whose focuses are alike can discuss in here.

Also, I would love to hear from those who are already attending.

I am changing my major from education to Human Development and Family Studies or developmental psychology field and curious to know what your experience has been like at the program.

The most universities I applied would offer some kind of financial aids if admission is offered I believe. I wonder how the funding is like in general or for next year.

How did you prepare for an interview and what kind of question did they ask you? (I guess I could ask current graduate students once they contact me for an interview, but it would be also nice if you could share with me or anyone who might be interested in.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

P.S. I can’t find ranking for Human Development and Family Studies though I could find ranking of Developmental Psychology. Therefore, I assume “the usual big names” and well-known schools should work the same. Please correct me if I am wrong and let me know if any of you know about this.

I applied to 3 HDFS programs. So far I was only contaced by one (UT-Austin) and had a phone interview (I'm an international). I know that final decisions will be made in late January.

I applied to UT-Austin as well as an international applicant.

I wonder if my quantitative score on GRE and not having reserch experience hurt my admission since I have not been contacted by the school for an interview. What did they ask you? How long was the interview? Do you have research experience?

Not every school has made decision yet, but it makes me nervous and discouraged although I should not.

I submitted one of papers I wrote when I was in Med program (about 10 to 15 pages long) and I also wonder it that was a mistake.

I did not use any data analysis (statistics involved) when I was in the program.

I have applied to one school in HDFS. I am interested in the effects of family relationships, particularly how non-related fathers in the house or no father effect children. I have mostly applied to psych programs, but there is a professor I really wanted to work with who was in the HDFS dept.

How do I add what schools and program I applied to. got accepted, rejected, and etc like you did in here?
